I'm usually not a fan of knitting scarves but I bought the book Scarf Style after seeing that I wanted to make several of them!  I have made 3 already, 2 for Christmas gifts and one for myself.

The first is Ruffles. It took less than 4 balls of Cashmerino and is really long, about 92".  I'm only 4'11!  I did it in my team's colors (Kentucky) for wearing to games and rushed through it so it would be done in time for the last football game at the end of November.  It kind of blends in with my shirt here but I love this picture because of my sweetie little dog.

I did another Ruffles as a gift for my best friend.  It was supposed to be a Christmas gift but I didn't finish it until recently.  I'm horrible  Wink  I used 3 skeins of Berroco Softtwist.  It's shorter than the other, about 66" long, but this second one seemed to take forver to knit, after having done one already, so I didn't start another ball.

For a work Secret Santa, I drew the name of someone who makes jewelry so I knew she'd appreciate something handmade.  Backyard Leaves was the scarf I really fell in love with in the book, and she'd be a perfect recipient.  I used 3 balls of Plymouth Suri Merino which is super soft and nice to work with.  It's about 70" long.  I am crazy about this pattern!  This is only the first half of it but it shows off the pattern better than some of the other pics I took. I did weave in ends. Smiley

it's funny, I saw that scarf( ruffles) in my local knitting store, and I loved it, was going to make it but i'm to cheap to buy the book as I haven't really been into the scarf thing lately..but those look beautiful! did you find the ruffle pattern complicated? is it worth buying the book for?

Magnum, I can't bring myself to buy knitting books for just one project, especially a $20+ knitting book  You may want to see if your library has it.  I've checked out a lot of knitting books from mine so I could decide whether I liked enough of the projects to justify the cost.  It's not difficult at all.  It's done with short rows which are really simple for this project.

KnitPicks has a similar looking project...

kt- the chart does look a little intimidating at first but it's not bad!  It's tough to do while watching something else since you have to count on both RS and WS but you can quickly discover mistakes.  You repeat it about 20 times so I enlarged the chart and made a copy for each repeat.  I highlighted each line as I finished it.  It made it a lot easier to keep track of where I was in the project.

Making a copy is a great idea! I might have to try that for lace knitting...
